Ras y Gader, the Cader Idris mountain race, one of the toughest fell races in Wales, and viewed by many as a classic "must do" race. The event starts and finishes in the market town of Dolgellau, at sea level, and climbs almost 3000ft to the summit of Pen y Gader itself. One of the real challenges of the race is the constantly changing terrain, switching from steep metalled roads to flat tracks behind Gwernan lake, pitched steps up the Pony Path, and picking your way among the boulder fields on the final ascent........and then you've got to do it all in reverse!
Our President's (Marie Owen) daughter Clare, will be participating in this race to raise funds for Chamwell. The race takes place on Saturday 21st May 2022.
Why Clare wants to run this race for Chamwell.
"I feel amazing when I am out in the mountains and this race is up a mountain that I have visited with my family since I was a young child and have kept returning to because it is so special and holds a dear place in my heart. I feel so lucky to be fit and healthy and have so many opportunities to enjoy exercise. The Chamwell Centre is an incredible resource for children and adults of all abilities to come and enjoy sports and friendships. The space and facilities provide a platform for all to enjoy sport and exercise socially and every one of them is an inspiration to me."
We wish Clare all the best, and thank her for doing this on behalf of Chamwell.
